Giancarlo Fisichella:
"Like this morning we weren't able to find the right set-up and were really lacking grip, so I wasn't able to push as hard as I needed to which would have been at least a few tenths quicker. I'm disappointed at starting from the fifth row tomorrow but the car runs much better on a high fuel load so I'm confident of having a strong race."

Alexander Wurz:
"It was a frustrating session with the red flag interrupting one of my runs, then having to stop twice on the weighbridge meant I lost a lot of time and couldn't make any set-up changes. Also we struggled a little with engine power so I was 5 km down on my teammate on the straight."

Pat Symonds:
"Qualifying today was all about using the tyres correctly. This is a very hard tyre for this circuit and consequently needs to be managed carefully. I don't feel we got the best out of the tyres today and I am disappointed with the qualifying position."

Flavio Briatore:
"We certainly aren't happy with our qualifying performance. We didn't get the most out of the tyres and struggled with the set-up. We just hope to improve for the race tomorrow."
